  • The NY attorney general filed a fraud lawsuit against Donald Trump, his business, and three of his children.

  • Trump's son Eric, who was also named in the AG suit, immediately lashed out at the attorney geernal.

  • "Letitia James is the most corrupt Attorney General in United States History," he wrote on Truth Social.

Former President Donald Trump's son Eric lashed out at New York Attorney General Letitia James immediately after she filed a lawsuit Wednesday accusing him and his family of years of business fraud at the Trump Organization, where he's an executive.

"Letitia James is the most corrupt Attorney General in United States History - she campaigned on the promised to sue my father… watch for yourself!" he wrote on Truth Social.

The former president's son, who is executive vice president of the Trump Organization, posted a video of James, created by Donald Trump's Save America PAC, that says she campaigned on suing Trump and shows her saying "his days are numbered."

During James' campaign for attorney general in 2018, she said she would investigate Donald Trump and his business. The day after she was elected, she was more explicit, saying: "We're definitely going to sue him."

The lawsuit, which comes after a 3-year investigation, names the former president, his business, and his three eldest children and says it has evidence of over 200 instances of false and misleading valuations of their assets.

James' office said "Trump falsely inflated his net worth by billions of dollars to further enrich himself and cheat the system."

James said the conduct detailed in her suit may violate state and criminal law, including "issuing false statements to financial institutions and bank fraud." She said state investigations would refer these allegations to the US attorney for the Southern District of New York and the IRS.
